Reform Shul Can Stay Till Hearing

Download PDF for this date

Kehilat Ramat Aviv, a Reform congregation in northern Tel Aviv, will be allowed to remain in its city-owned quarters, pending an eviction hearing scheduled for May 6.

The congregation, which belongs to the Israeli Movement for Progressive Judaism, was given occupancy of the site on a temporary basis.

That was six years ago. The municipality demanded last month that it move immediately. The congregation obtained an injunction, after which the city agreed to let it stay until the court decides.
